At Last! A Delicious Cleanse-friendly Salad Dressing!

Hip, hip, hooray! After what seems like a lifetime of searching for a salad dressing that wasn't loaded with fat or sugar or sodium, I've finally found not one, but TWO great options! Leave it to the folks at Bragg to come up with something that's as good as it gets - nutrition-wise and taste-wise. It's gluten-free and has only 4 grams of sugar. And after scouring the ingredient listing and reading up on what fruit juice "concentrate" is (because there are various fruit juice concentrates in these products) I've decided that, for me, this stuff is just fine to use whether I'm cleansing or not. And that's based on my assumption that because the sugar content is so low, and because it's not mentioned in the ingredient listing, the fuit juice concentrate in these products comes only from the fruit - no sugar added.

I'm crazy about the Hawaiian flavor and really like Braggberry as well. And at 20 calories per 2 tablespoons it's a screamer of a deal in the calorie department. I get it at Whole Foods (it goes on sale fairly frequently) or you can order online. If you're looking for a great-tasting salad dressing I don't think you'll find better than this. I hope you like it as much as I do!


  1. YAY! I love anything Bragg's, and my salad dressing choices have been getting awfully boring.

    OK, confession time. I had 2 glasses of red wine on Thurday night. It was dinner out and a concert, and I did some preplanned cheating. ONLY with the wine, though, I had roasted beets with pecans while everyone else ate enchiladas and salmon with brisket and risotto. I'm now right back with the program...

  2. You're going to LOVE these dressings, Jeannie! And don't even think twice about Thursday. I know you gave careful consideration to having the wine, and that you give careful consideration to your diet on a regular basis. That's the great thing about cleansing - that thought we give to what we consume transfers into our daily lives. So you made a choice to have a few glasses of wine, then you made another choice to get right back on the program. You didn't spiral out of control; you did things in moderation and in a mindful way. In my opinion, you did great! And I hope it was a really good wine!
